While promoting the release of his latest DVD for the film "God's Club," well-known Baldwin brother Stephen revealed that he is connecting with a church in New York City to start a Bible study that will help young people who are lost, depressed or confused.
"I just found in my heart that what young people are seeking more than ever is to be challenged with an authentic encounter and experience with truth. That's what I believe young people are looking for," Baldwin told The Christian Post.
The actor maintained that he's gearing up to host the Bible study because after visiting many churches that focus on youth in the city, he felt there was still something missing. Baldwin contends that as much as young, hip churches are "blessing" the younger generation with music and a practical kind of Bible teaching, that really only goes so far. more >>
Country music star Reba McEntire credits God and her Christian faith for getting her through a two-year split from her husband and subsequent divorce she says she never wanted.
"I prayed every day [for God] to help me have the strength to move one foot in front of the other to continue on with what I'm supposed to be doing and why He put me on this Earth in the first place," McEntire told CMT's Cody Alan during an interview earlier this month.
"The divorce was not my idea," she explained. "I didn't want it in any shape, form or fashion. It was really hard to make the adjustment when someone's not happy. I just want everybody to be happy in their lives because our lives are too short to be miserable. I just thought it was the best thing to take my marbles and go play somewhere else, is what Daddy used to always say." more >>
